Anna Beer:
“Johnny and Bess: Narrative and Gender”

Anna Beer is the author of two biographies: Bess: The Life of Lady Raleigh, Wife to Sir Walter and John Milton: Poet, Pamphleteer and Patriot. Her talk will consider issues of gender and narrative in life-writing from different eras up to and including the present, and address the sometimes complex relationship between writer, (biographical) subject and reader.
